I got to the end of Gallifrey Series 5, and while the characters are still in the same alternate Gallifrey and will likely be through Series 6, the story threw in a twist which was just WHAAA?? So, though I'm still wanting just get going and go home, at least this should be fun ride.

I've started listening to Series 6, and it provided one of the best quotes ever. It is VERY spoilerific, so I'm hiding it behind this cut, so if you look, that's your fault.

Cut hiding spoilers! You've been warned!

One thing I've really liked about Gallifrey is that they reference the Doctor very sparingly. They don't use the Doctor as fan service; they instead rely on their own strong cast and storylines to build their own unique brand and following. I remember something that Neil Gaiman said once about the Sandman series. He said that when he wrote it, he imagined that the Endless were the celebrities, and that if he wanted one to appear in a story, he had to pay them a million dollars for each appearance. That way, he kept them special, while also forcing himself to improve the quality of the base stories and not rely on the Endless to keep the audience engaged. Gallifrey does the same thing. I think they've mentioned the Doctor twice in total so far. Well, three times...

Okay, a few more spoilers, though nothing you wouldn't know if you read the Big Finish teaser synopses...
